Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks is already on the disabled list but was expect to make a bullpen session on Sunday, but he's been sidelined by sickness.

Before Monday's game, Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters the right-hander was suffering from "intestinal turmoil," and underwent a colonoscopy on Monday.

"He got really sick -- I mean, really sick," Francona told reporters, including Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal. "They ended up having to keep him in the hospital for three days."

Jenks is on the DL with back stiffness for the second time this season and had also spent time on the DL with an elbow injury earlier this season. Jenks has appeared in just 19 games for the Red Sox,with a 2-2 record and 6.32 ERA. He's struck out 17 and walked 13 in 15 2/3 innings. He was expected to return to Fort Myers, Fla., today to continue his rehab, but was unable to make the trip.

Jenks is signed through next season on a two-year, $12 million deal.
